While on this trip, when I arrived in the rendevous spot in Marin County, my car was overheated and a nice person stopped by to see if he could help. Later I realized this good samaritan was Peter Coyote

Â InÂ 1975 an extraordinary document surfaced called â€œA Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File.â€ Distributed hand-to-hand long before the advent of computer-based social media, the 22-page typed copy I received in 1976 had been reproduced so many times that several words and letters were unclear or missing. Evidently a fervent underground effort had been underway to get this information out. So Iâ€™ve kept a copy of the Skeleton Key around for the last four decades taking notes on developments, and recent history, so far, has increased my confidence in the documentâ€™s veracity.

Bruce Roberts and Carmen Miranda from magazine photo, ca. 1952:
Note: Author Gerald Carroll discovered this photo in the archives of the San Francisco Examiner in 1989. Stephanie Caruana assured me this was the same Bruce Roberts she knew in San Francisco. It shows not only that Bruce Roberts existed but that he had knowledge and interest concerning artificial gems. SH
Here’s one that should make JREF* devotees froth at the mouth! We at The Swill BucketÂ generally keep comments closed to avoid cognitive infiltrators–and sesquipedalian misanthropes–but we thought it would be compassionate (even humorous) to give JREF advocates a chance to vent and hurl crude epithets at the authors –or people and ideas associated with them–in JREFrs’ distinctÂ style of rabid verbal attack they somehow equate with intellectual discourse. However, I expect your typical JREF adherent won’t make it past the first paragraph anyway.

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers
“A case study examining online commenting trends was performed by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent that revealed so called ã€Œconspiracy theoristsã€ are actually more reasonable & sensible than those who are considered conventionalists.
Not that long ago, practically anyone who thought outside of the box, questioned the official stories, or did any type of investigation into certain subjects was labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ In fact, many of these people, including the majority of the writers here at Collective Evolution, are still considered conspiracy theorists by many even though the goal is simply to examine or verify the truth of something.”
